Fade Cream Products for Liver Spots

Posted by Porcelana Staff on

Many people with different skin types and tones develop liver spots, but they aren’t something that you simply have to live with. Let’s learn a bit about liver spots and how fade cream products may be able to fade out liver spots for you.

What Causes Liver Spots

Also known as age spots, liver spots are caused primarily by overexposure to the sun. These spots form in your outermost layer of skin, called the epidermis, where the sun’s UV rays can promote an excess of melanin in patches of skin.

Liver spots commonly form on the arms, face, shoulders, and hands. However, they can appear on any part of the body that has been subjected to prolonged or intense sun exposure.

Who Is Most Prone to Liver Spots

Although essentially anyone can develop liver spots in their lifetimes, certain people are more prone to them than others. These are some of the most common risk factors of liver spots:

  • Genetics and heredity
  • Light colored, fair skin
  • Frequent exposure to the sun
  • History of sunburns
  • Being over age 40

How to Prevent Liver spots

Of course, it’s always best to prevent liver spots from forming in the first place so you aren’t faced with costly and time-consuming treatments later in life. Even if you have developed some liver spots, you can still take measures to prevent additional ones from forming.

Here are some liver spot prevention tips to consider:

  • Wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher all over
  • Protect your eyes with sunglasses
  • Avoid mid-day sunlight
  • Wear protective clothing – hats, long sleeves, pants

Liver Spot Treatments

Many people start with their primary care physician when concerned about liver spots, but you may be referred to a dermatologist to discuss your treatment options. According to the Mayo Clinic, these are a few questions that you might want to ask your doctor when you make an appointment:

  • What suspicious changes in my skin should I look for?
  • If the spots are age spots, what can I do to improve the appearance?
  • Do treatments make them go away completely, or do they just lighten the age spots?
  • Could these spots turn into skin cancer?

After a visual inspection and perhaps a skin biopsy, your doctor may recommend one or more of the following treatment options:

  • Hydroquinone fade cream products
  • Retinoids
  • Laser therapy
  • Cryotherapy
  • Dermabrasion
  • Chemical peel

To supplement your treatment regimen with all natural ingredients, you can take vitamin B, vitamin C, calcium, and magnesium. These are some herbs that have been used to assist patients with fading liver spots:

  • Licorice
  • Dandelion
  • Ginseng
  • Beet juice
  • Sarsaparilla

Fade Cream for Liver Spots

The easiest and most cost-effective way to fade out liver spots is often to use a fade cream. Many of these creams, including Porcelana Day Lightening Cream and Porcelana Night Lightening Cream, are effective, affordable, and available without a prescription.

Fade creams do take some time to work, but they have helped many people feel more comfortable and confident about their skin. If you try a fade cream and see no results within three months, consult your doctor to discuss other options that may be available to you.
